Social Services Counselor Provides Assistance
Luke Dorf
In March the Tigard Library entered into a partnership with Luke-Dorf mental health center to assist people who need help with housing, health care and other services. A homeless outreach worker from Luke-Dorf will have office hours in the library on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from 10 a.m.-noon.  People can make appointments or just walk in. 

Luke-Dorf is providing the counselor.  The library is making space available for the appointments.  The library is also providing business-sized cards with information about the dates and times Luke-Dorf will offer the service, as well as how to make an appointment.  For more information, people can call 503-726-3736 or email outreach@luke-dorf.org


Do Taxes Tax You?
The Library can help.
The federal government has been sending fewer forms during the past few years to encourage people to get their tax forms online, but we will have a limited number of the three 1040 forms and some instruction booklets for them. We will also have a binder of common forms and schedules that you can photocopy for 10 cents a page. Please bring cash for photocopies. We cannot accept credit or debit cards.

The tax deadline this year is Tuesday, April 18, so you’ll have a few extra days. The State of Oregon no longer provides hard copies of tax forms. Go here to learn which forms you need and print them out.

Print From Anywhere
(October 2016)
Do you use your laptop or mobile device at the library? Ever want to print something you’re working on? Is your home printer on the blink?  Printing at the Tigard Library just got easier. Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS) now offers a cloud-based service that provides more options for printing.

With Print from Anywhere, you can print to a library printer from your laptop in the library, your computer from home, or your mobile device from almost anywhere. When you submit a document, it stays in a private queue at the library for at least four hours. Get your print job at the library by entering your email address and paying for the pages you print. Learn more, get the code to print from Tigard and print on-the-go.

Library to Show Presidential Debates
(September 28, 2016)
The Tigard Library will show two of the remaining debates in the Houghton Room. On Tuesday, Oct. 4, the library will air the vice-presidential debate at 6 p.m. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, the library will air the final presidential debate at 6 p.m. The Houghton Room is on the second floor of the Library. The Library is closed on Sunday evenings, so we will not show the October 9 debate.

Library Gets High Marks for Customer Service in Annual Survey
(March 14, 2016)
Of the 3,094 completed surveys, more than 98 percent rated Tigard Library service as excellent or good. Satisfied patrons commented on how friendly and clean the library is and gave a “thumbs up” to its collection and programs. One respondent commented “Love libraries & how surveys (like this) help to continue progress & improvements to serve all ages & levels of library usage.”

A total of 1,289 people responded to an open-ended question for comments and suggestions. Many provided suggestions for additional services or improvements. Nearly 100 said they were glad the library had re-opened on Thursdays.

Over half of the respondents (58.9%) said they learned about library services and programs from the City’s website, followed by the library’s e-newsletter Books and Bits and library posters, brochures and bookmarks.

A total of 33% of survey takers said they had walked or biked to the library, compared to 32% last year. In keeping with the City of Tigard’s vision to become the most walkable community in the Pacific Northwest, the library has offered several programs to encourage people to walk or bike when possible.
